Rochestown, Cork - €270,000

88sq m (954sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 3


WITH its tastefully turned out interior and its Rochestown address, No 27 Carmen Lawn has been attracting a lot of early interest.

At an open showing of the three-bed end of terrace property this week, auctioneer Michael Pigott was expecting this to translate into a good first-time buyer turnout.

“It’s owner occupied and in excellent condition — it has been very tastefully finished and decorated by the current owners who have had it for five or six years,’’ says Mr Piggot, adding that the house is within walking distance of Garryduff Sports Centre and near Douglas village.

Offering 954 sq ft of living space, it has a modern cream-coloured front living room with walnut flooring and a marble fireplace.

The kitchen diner at the rear is also cream with an attractive feature purple and cream wall and has fitted units and integrated appliances.

In addition to a guest WC at ground level there’s an upstairs bathroom and three bedrooms also going a little with the cream and purple theme — the largest one has an en suite and built in wardrobes.

Fitted with gas heating the property has a C2 energy rating.

To the front there’s a tarmac driveway and to the rear a south facing lawned garden.

Part of a mixed development built in 2006, the property overlooks a large green area.

Seeking offers of €270,000 Mr Pigott says the price, the condition and the Rochestown location, close to schools and amenities, will make it very attractive to families.
